Six Bottles In A Leaky Boat

What do you serve to a drunken sailor? Hmm... probably a nice syrah.

When I decided to cross the Pacific in a small rowboat, carrying only a 6-Pack of Amador Syrah along with me, I figured it would be the time of my life. Ripe plum aromas, scents of vanilla and caramel, the ability to be cellared for up to ten years, what more could a wine/sea lover like me want?

That's why I was so worried when I sprung a leak.

Of course, lucky for me, the hole in my boat was the same size as a bottle of 2008 Amador Syrah! All I had to do was finish a bottle and plug the leak, and I was back on track! And boy, was that a delicious solution.

Until I saw the second hole. And the third. And the fourth.

But good news! My 2008 Amador Syrah was a 6-Pack! And I had a very nice wine glass in my pack! Pour, slurp, pour, slurp, pour, slurp, and then I was nice and tipsy… I mean, water-tight.

And then I saw the seventh hole.

So, if anyone out there wants to order me another 6-Pack of 2008 Amador Syrah and send it care of the Pacific Ocean...

This 2008 Syrah is a dark plum color. The aromas are ripe plum and new oak.  Scents of vanilla and caramel from the small oak barrel aging complement the fruit aromas and flavors. The wine has a great structure and will age nicely.  It can be cellared for at least 10 years.

As an Estate Wine, the grapes come only from Veauta Ranch. The term Estate Bottled is reserved for the highest expression of a winemaker’s art. It is a strict code of conduct that the grapes and wine must be under the control of the winery from the care in the vineyard until the wine is bottled.
 
The growing season of 2008 started off with a week of very cold temperatures prior to bud break.  As in the previous vintage, we had half the normal rainfall, so we are officially in drought conditions.  The year finished well and rain held off until December.
 
After gentle crushing and destemming, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at moderately cool temperatures to retain varietal expression of the fruit. The finished wine was aged for 18 months in old French & American oak. This is a really great Syrah, and it will reward careful cellaring with a complex and flavorful wine even after 10 years.
